One of a Kind: Bette enamelled steel-titanium alloy bathroom components
Published: 23 April 2020

Bette has been producing premium architectural bathroom components from steel-titanium alloy enamelled with purely natural materials since 1952.

Utilising a unique thermoforming process they’re able to create flowing shapes with extraordinary craftsmanship and precision. Bette products are one-of-a-kind, with a range of colours and dimensions to create an inspiring space in every bathroom design.

In New Zealand Bette is represented by, providing a range of Glazed Titanium Steel Trays and Bath tubs.

The sophisticated designs Bette is known for are made possible thanks to their one-of-a-kind moulding techniques. Rather than stretching the steel, they pull it smoothly into its final shape with a force of 800 tonnes. This special process allows them to achieve the greatest degree of precision and a particularly low, uniform, steel thickness.

The basic form is then configured by cropping according to the dimensions and finishing the outer edges individually. Their automated serial production line can handle more than 600 different colours and numerous additional features.

Bette chose to focus on natural materials such as glass and steel more than 60 years ago. All of their products are 100% recyclable and exclusively “Made in Germany” at their own site in Delbrück, where they bear the responsibility for 380 jobs.

All Bette bathroom elements are of lasting value, gentle on the skin, and manufactured completely without chemicals or solvents. They draw two thirds of the energy used in the manufacturing process from their own sources.

  • Available in Gloss White, Gloss Black and Matt Black
  • Available in 20+ different sizes
